    My friend gave me a zen sleek photo about a year ago, and it was working fine. but i never bought a charger for it so the battery has been dead for a year now.. and i just bought a charger for it. but it still seems to not to on.

    and a blue light comes on whenever i charge it tho?

    ya i bought my zen about a year and a half ago and have been using it regularly (everyday) but all the sudden it won't charge when i plug it in to the charger that came with it. the blue light goes on when it is "charging" but as soon as i unplug it it says low battery? any thoughts?

My creative software for Zen Sleek Photo won't load on Vista

Vista by default will support the Zen Sleek Photo as an MTP device, which means that Windows Media Player will recognize it as well as Explorer.

You can use WMP to sync music to it, and Explorer to drag/drop photos to it.

Charging creative sleek photo

Creative's junction is unique, an ipod cable won't help. Buy a charger or better yet, a usb connection cable specific to the sleek photo online. I just bought one through amazon for a couple of dollars.

Computer stopped recognizing USB cord from Zen sleek photo

The first problem is probably a software incompatibility between Creative's software and Windows Media Player version 11. The second problem is possibly a need to replace the battery. 3rd party batteries are about 20 dollars now.

Creative zen sleek photo not recognized by win xp

I got my Creative Zen Sleek Photo from a friend and everything I did wouldn't let Windows recognize it, but then I got it to work almost magically.

1. Make sure you have the proper drivers installed for it that come with the CD. If you don't have the CD, you can download the ISO here.

2. Reboot. When it comes back up, plug the cable into your computer, then into your Sleek. The software should sync up. For some reason, my Zen wasn't being recognized from the usb port on my computer tower, but I plugged it into my monitor's USB port and then it worked. Try that, if none of that works, then it may be a problem with your computer not knowing which driver to assign to your Zen, and if so, try the steps below.


1. Plug your Sleek to your computer.
2. Open up Windows' Device manager (right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties". Go to the "Hardware" tab, then click "Device Manager").
3. Locate the entry for "Creative Zen Sleek" in your device list. It should appear either under "Sound, video, and game controllers" or under "USB Devices". Once you locate the entry, uninstall it.
4. Unplug your Sleek and wait a few seconds.
5. Plug your Sleek back in and allow the "new Hardware Wizard" to identify and install the drivers for it.

HD for Zen Sleek Photo 20GB

Hitachi microdrives

What people have figured out is they can remove the uber expensive Hitachi drives, and replacing them with much cheaper (and lower capacity) CF cards.
